Children and families
What support is available for children, families and young people in Lambeth?
Families, children, teenagers and parents use a broad range of health services in Lambeth which are made available by the NHS in partnership with Lambeth Council and voluntary organisations .
Parents and young people can access healthcare and support not just in a hospital but through a number of community settings, including Lambeth schools, nurseries, children's centres, at local GP surgeries, pharmacies or even at home. The range of services include; health visiting for new parents in their home; healthy eating advice from a school nurse or at Children Centres; maternity services at a GP Practice, and hospital; health therapies such as speech and language therapy at schools and emotional wellbeing and mental health support.
We work in partnership to make sure all children and young people are supported, regardless of their circumstances and background.
